Behind the Lens: Lauren Ross

The pro-skier-turned-photog shares the private stories behind her new exhibit, "Woman Kind."

In her current show running through October 28 at Pop Gallery in LA’s Culver City, photographer (and former pro skier) Lauren Ross celebrates the beauty and general badassness of the female form. Because many of her subjects are pro athletes and close personal friends, the resulting photographs are at once dreamy, intimate and physically exhilarating. In honor of the show, which benefits, a nonprofit that supports at-risk youth through action sports mentoring, Ross shared a few of her favorite images. Click through the gallery above for the stories behind the shots.
